  1. Community Conversation - Dean Search

    May 19, 2021 - 12:00pm to 1:00pm

    We invite you to a community conversation about our search for the new SSW Dean. This will be a time to share where you think the school should be headed and what you think we should be looking for in a Dean to lead us there. This is a time for conversation - ask questions, raise ideas, and talk together as a school community. To aid the conversation, space will be limited. (If there is a lot of interest in this topic, we can hold another session soon.)

    About the format. A few students and faculty have decided to try something different - smaller community conversations. Our hope is that this can take topics that lend themselves better to verbal dialogue off of email and into a face-to-face (or screen-to-screen!) environment. We will draw heavily on practices from intergroup dialogue and restorative justice.

    Zoom link will be sent out the morning of the event.

  2. Centennial Lecture Series: Sharon Parrott - Pandemic, Relief, and Building toward an Equitable Future Centennial Lecture Series: Sharon Parrott - Pandemic, Relief, and Building toward an Equitable Future

    May 19, 2021 - 4:00pm to 5:30pm

    Join us for our Centennial Lecture Series featuring Michigan Social Work Alumna, Sharon Parrott, MSW '92.

    Pandemic, Relief, and Building toward an Equitable Future: The health and economic crisis shined a light on and exacerbated longstanding problems that were in plain sight for those willing to see them long before COVID-19. The crisis made clear the weaknesses in our economic and health security programs that are supposed to protect people when hard times hit while also showing in the starkest terms the stark inequities across lines of race, ethnicity, gender, and immigration that long pre-dated the pandemic. Parrott will talk about the impacts of the health and economic crisis across different groups, both the strengths and weaknesses of our public response to the crisis, the opportunity for long-term, systemic policy changes that could broaden opportunity, reduce poverty and inequality, narrow disparities, and move us toward universal health coverage, and the challenges to achieving these policy goals. Parrott will also reflect on the “long arc” of policy change and the forces that can create and stymie change.

  6. Building a Social Justice Informed Private Practice | Part 2: Skills

    May 20, 2021 - 1:00pm to 5:00pm

    This workshop is part two of a four-part series on social justice oriented approaches to offering private behavioral health services in a private practice setting. This section focuses on skills for outpatient behavioral health services. While we encourage participants to complete all four parts, you may also select those that best fit your needs and schedule.

    This course will provide a foundational understanding of private and public behavioral health services so that participants are able to identify the skills needed to deliver outpatient services as a clinician with a social justice orientation. With increased access to behavioral health services through policies such as Health Care Parity and the Affordable Care Act, more community members with mild to moderate need for behavioral health services are seeking care and there is a greater need for non-public behavioral health care providers who deliver culturally-responsive and socially-just services.
